Parkinson's Forecast for September (Anchorage area)

Ahoy there People with an interest in Parkinson's Disease. What does the future hold? Glad you asked. I have peered long and hard in my crystal ball, and can say the following will come to pass...
 The telehealth presentation will be 9th of September at 1:00 pm in room 2401 of the Providence oncology wing on Piper St.  Go to the second floor, walk down the lonnnnnnnng hall that stretches South from the cafe and look for room 2401 pretty much at the end of the hall on your right. This Month, Dance and how Dance helps those affected by Parkinson’s Disease. Speaker: Suzanne Ostersmith, is a Theatre Artist, Choreographer, Visual Artist, and Arts Educator. She serves as Academic Dance Program Director for Gonzaga University’s theatre and Parkinson’s Resource Center of Spokane, More information at
Of course, if you are interested in dance as a way of coping with Parkinson's disease, you should know we are fortunate enough to have Carolyn Lassiter leading classes (please see below) I'd also be remiss if I didn't mention that Yoga for Parkinson's is underway again in Anchorage, Thanks to Rocky Plotnick. Here is the info on that

We have a schedule for our Yoga for Parkinson's class in August & September! Classes will be from 1:15 pm to 2:15 pm on Thursdays at the Alaska Dance Theatre (550 E. 33rd Ave).There is no charge for this class.  Yoga mats are provided.  No experience necessary. Just bring comfy clothes and an open mind. Watch for the website, - launch date is August 5th.
Finally, we have our regular meeting scheduled for  September 21, I will try to have a report ready for you on the Inland Hope conference on Parkinson's disease
That's what was in the crystal ball, more news as it breaks! (As the news breaks, not the crystal ball.)
